The Opportunity

The University of the South Pacific (USP) is the premier tertiary institution in the Pacific region. Established in 1968, it is committed to international standards of research and teaching excellence, with an emphasis on key regional issues. USP is jointly owned by 12 member countries: Cook Islands, Fiji, Kiribati, Marshall Islands, Nauru, Niue, Samoa, Solomon Islands, Tokelau, Tonga, Tuvalu and Vanuatu. Courses are offered face-to-face at our main campuses (predominantly at Laucala Campus, where this position is based), as well as by online and blended modes, in order to cater to students spread across 33 million square kilometres of ocean on both sides of the international dateline. This location at the heart of the world’s most linguistically diverse region makes USP a fascinating institution in which to work.



The role of the Media and Public Relations Coordinator is to work in liaison with the Manager Public Relations and Communication in developing a more proactive and professional approach to community interaction, marketing and public relations, not only within the region but also internationally. The Media and Public Relations Coordinator will work with relevant teams and USP’s regional Campuses to achieve consistency in brand promotion and ensure that key messages are well-coordinated and delivered to the highest standards across print and electronic communication.
